Event Description

Hello All,

As you probably know already, next week is Mental Health Awareness Week and I have foolishly allowed myself to be persuaded to take part in a small challenge.

The challenge is to complete 50 Climbs in 24 hours, in support of Climbout. As I am working on Saturday 17th May I plan to do my 50 climbs over next week when I'm not working. Some on Wednesday night at Manchester Climbing Wall and some on Sunday at Windgather.

Before you all rush for your purses or wallets, please don’t. Were not after your money, but we would really appreciate your pledge to undertake a Random Act of Kindness for someone who may be in need of a kind word or gesture.

So, if you would like to support us, please think of a small (or large) kindness that you could do for a friend, a relative, a colleague or (if you’re feeling really brave) a complete stranger: something which might add a little to the sum total of human happiness.

Please get involved...

  • Perhaps do 50 climbs yourself and share this message
  • Have a look at the site at http://www.climbout.co.uk/
  • Do a good deed and send me your success stories.

Thank you for giving this message your attention,

That post looks very familiar

Have looked at the climb out website and I totally understand how climbing can counteracts some of the worst aspects of depression !
Will try and do as many acts of random kindness as I can on the day
